Could this be true about The Apprentice?

Uh oh – it looks like another one of our favourite reality television shows has been hit by fix rumours, and this time it’s The Apprentice.

Selina Waterman-Smith, who is still a contestant, posted a series of tweets ranting about the pre-recorded business show. ‘The finalists are picked from the start, the whole show is fixed and set up,’ she wrote. She also called the producers ‘dreadful’.


Although she went on to delete many of the tweets, she has left one which declares ‘Don’t get mad, get even.’ GULP. Selina has already been given an official warning from the show after falling out with rival Charleine Wain. What’s she going to do next?

Selina also did an amusing parody of Lord Alan Sugar’s iconic ‘You’re fired’ stance with a sexy lingerie shot modelling for Bluebella, wearing a blue set of bra, knickers, suspenders and stockings…we can’t imagine Lord Alan wearing that, somehow!

Despite Selina’s allegations, a spokeswoman for The Apprentice has denied that the show is fixed. Speaking to The Sun, the show representative said: ‘It is in no way “fixed” and we strongly refutre any insinuation to the contrary. The final two candidates are decided on by Lord Sugar in the board-room at the end of episode 11.’

However, another source said: ‘Bosses are furious she is making all of these accusations, but thy just can’t seem to control her despite the fact she is still on the show.’

Who do we believe? One thing’s for sure – Selina’s rant makes it extremely unlikely that she has won the show, narrowing down our favourites to win. The bets are ON!
